The Journal of Clinical Orthodontics named Bianca Lau, DDS, from the University of the Pacific as the winner of the 2023 Eugene L. Gottlieb JCO Student of the Year Award. This 60-minute session will allow time for presentation and questions.
In cases where an ectopically erupting tooth is affecting the neighboring teeth, there are many different approaches to achieve an esthetic and functional outcome. In this webinar, we will be discussing a case in which central incisor and canine substitution was used for the management of an impacted maxillary canine. Canine substitution is commonly used in orthodontic treatment to replace a missing or damaged lateral incisor; in this case, however, we will be illustrating how a maxillary canine can also be used to camouflage for a missing central incisor. We will explore the keys to patient selection and treatment planning.
